Henrique Oliveira

My friend Heather Wynn spied this article today on Daily Arts Muse (a great site I'd never seen before- full of handcrafted art and non-traditional media). The artist is Henrique Oliveira and here is a small sampling of his found wood installations. Watch the video to find out where his idea and the wood itself originates...its an incredibly clever transformation! Henrique lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil.
